Ulster Sign Aviva Premiership Outhalf
Ulster have announced the signing of Irish qualified outhalf, Brett Herron from Bath.
The 20 year-old who has represented England at U-18 level will provide cover for Paddy Jackson in the wake of the impending retirement of Ulsterman Ian Humprey’s, who’s set to hang up his boots at the end of the season.
Ulster Director of Rugby Less hailed the potential of the 20-year-old Herron.
We are delighted to bring Brett into the Ulster environment. He has undoubted potential, with an array of skills and real line-breaking ability, which we aim to explore further. With the depth of International-class outhalves at Bath, Brett’s opportunities have been limited to the ‘A’ team and Rosslyn Park, where he has excelled. An injury curtailed his almost certain starting berth for England in the U20 World Cup.
